Courtois will make R. Madrid debut vs Leganes

Courtois reportedly set to make debut as Real Madrid's goalkeeper

The Belgian shot-stopper will be Julen Lopetegui's pick when Los Blancos host Leganés tonight.

Real Madrid's $40M goalkeeper will finally have his day as the club's No.1 choice, as Julen Lopetegui has chosen Thibaut Courtois to start the game against Leganés.

The Belgian shot-stopper will send Keylor Navas to the bench after two games. Navas was in scintillating form during the team's first game against Getafe, and he also completed a fine performance against Girona, but he ended up conceding the game's opening goal.

Today, a report by Marca states that the Belgian shot-stopper will be given the starting nod over Navas. Lopetegui's decision to bench Navas might be surprising to some, since Navas had recently excused himself from international duty to fight for the starting spot at the Bernabeu. Furthermore, Navas just picked up UEFA's Best Goalkeeper of the Season Award on Thursday, beating Gianluigi Buffon and Alisson to the prize.

Here's Real Madrid's squad for tonight's game.
